London Fog Latte

An Earl Grey Tea Latte is also known as a London Fog. London Fog lattes are made by combining sweetened Earl Grey tea with some steamed milk, vanilla syrup and often lavender. Did you know that this drink was invented in Vancouver in the 90s? In Scotland, this drink is known as a "Vancouver fog”!

Ingredients you need to make a London Fog

  • 1 tsp of Earl Grey tea
  • 1/2 tsp. of dried lavender
  • 1 cup of boiling water
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1 tsp. Sugar, more or less to taste
  • A few drops of vanilla extract

    How to make a London Fog

    1. To prepare a cup of strong Earl Grey tea, begin by measuring out 1 teaspoon (about 4 grams) of loose leaf Earl Grey. Allow the tea to steep for 5 minutes with 1/2 teaspoon of dried lavender.
    2. Next, if you don't have a milk steamer, you can heat milk on the stove on a low-medium setting until it reaches 150°C (300 °F) or until steam appears. Avoid boiling the milk. Alternatively, you can warm the milk in the microwave for about 30 seconds. If using the stove method, whisk the milk until it doubles in size.
    3. To create your drink, add your preferred amount of sugar to the Earl Grey tea. Then, incorporate a few drops of vanilla extract and the steamed milk.
    4. Thoroughly stir all the ingredients until they are well combined. This delightful drink is ideally enjoyed warm.
    5. Remember to adjust the sugar quantity to suit your taste preferences. Feel free to experiment with various variations, such as different tea types or a sprinkle of cinnamon on top. Unleash your creativity and make it uniquely yours!
